Fun, at times
18 April 2009 | by gorthuSee all my reviews

Jimmy Wang Yu stars as a famous executioner who is about to make his 1000th beheading. Chin Siu Ho plays his disciple and from there it gets really weird. I think every single person who dies in this movie comes back to life. There are a lot of special effects, sometimes fun ones. The worst part of this movie is that there are no good fight scenes and the acting is horrible. chin Siu Ho shows some real talent, but he can't carry the movie by himself.

Picture and sound quality on the Image DVD is good.
